Really enjoyed your page! Joe and I grew up together in Crown Point surroundings and formed the basis of the twisted lives that followed. Just heard from him on his impending marriage. At any rate, just wanted o send a pat on the back for the fine work and say thanks for the fine photo-viewing.

Enjoyed your site!!! The Chicago Solider Field Parking lot shot is GREAT!!!!! Chicago was a regular site for a number of old friends to converge. Your photo brought the memories flooding back. Thanks!

What an awesome shot! I was at those shows on the 19th and 20th and I think they were the best I had ever seen. Scarlet/Fire was incredible that night.

Your shots are incredible - they really bring me back to some of the best times I've ever had.

[Thanks, Rob, but everybody remember to tell us which shot yr talking about when you say "that shot really does this or that"! Else we won't know what shot to link up to your comment.]

The picture, Series A #15 "Vending after the show at Deer Creek", is a great picture. I just wanted to say that it reminds me of "an angel, standing in a shaft of light, risin' up to paradise..." It has quite an eerie feel to it, maybe like the mother ship just landed behind this person. I think that the black and white photography works so well here because at some level it is like the music of the Dead. You are givin the framework, and viewer is left to fill in the rest. Just like the vague lyrics of the Dead, "sometimes the songs that we hear are just songs of our own." Your photography lets me fill in my own swirling colors and allows the pictures to be "mine", in the sense that what I make of it will unique to myself. There is a universal effect of your pictures, though, and that is the thousands of smiles you leave in your wake. Let it shine... and keep it on!

I saw exactly 100 Grateful Dead Concerts from 1968 to 1995

Show 1: 1968 (Eugene, OR..StudentUnion)
Show 2: 1970 (Corvallis, OR...Slats Gill F.H.)---Bus Show
LastShow: 1995 (Portland,OR...Portland Meadows)
Never less than a "merely professional effort" from the boys at the last 99.

The internet provides many an opportunity to provide pictures and stories from their own experiences as fans of the Grateful Dead.

Of the many sites I have visited while surfing the internet and looking at what others have to show and tell, I have come across many that are very ordinary. Yours however is quite good. While I sit writing this letter, DeadRadio is playing and I'm looking at your timeless photos and reminiscing fondly about the music of and times of our lives.

Well Done.

David Rae,

As always, bravo on the pix! The images in set F are among my favorite to date. I especially dig the "Sax player and shirt vendor." It has an eerie Chuck Close feel to it. Additionally, the photo of the "Deadhead and rabbit" is nice. Both of the subjects have the piercing gaze of the true "Head". Keep the photos coming.

I'm sitting with tears of happiness and sorrow running down my cheeks. I never got the opertunity to see them in concert, and have been kicking my self in the rear for a long time. It's beautiful sites like your's that let people like me experience it. Thanks for sharing. Love, Peace,
